There are distinct differences between an Electric Bike and a regular bicycle. This means that the car rack requirements needed to transport an E-bike also differ. We've put together a quick guide on how to choose the best Electric Bike Car Rack for you.
We've introduced Peruzzo car bicycle racks to our range of ebike accessories. The main difference with ebikes, in comparison to a regular push bike, is the weight. They are significantly heavier due to the motor, which is why it's highly recommended you use a car rack that has been specifically designed. Mainly for safety reasons when you're transporting your bike but also for keeping your ebikes in tip-top shape. You may also have more than one ebike, meaning more weight!
A particular range of Peruzzo bike carriers are all designed with this in mind, plus additional features that make them easy to put together and take apart. The Pure Instinct range has been designed to hold a max weight of 40kg - 65kg, allowing the weight for 2 to 3 ebikes, all dependent on the model. Models have also been designed with wider spaced wheel holders to accommodate ebikes - meaning you won't need to remove the battery pack when transporting your bike. Some models also offer an optional ramp for ease of loading.
Peruzzo car racks have specific benefits for ebikes, but they still have many other features that are advantageous for both traditional and electric bikes. They are extremely compact when folded so that they can be stored easily and fit well in a boot. They offer a foot operated tipping mechanism, to avoid back stress and ease movement of the bikes and car rack. Plus a lock to safely secure the bike to the carrier and the carrier to the vehicle.
Each Peruzzo model we supply has it's own benefits and it's important to understand the features on each so that you get the correct bike you. Take a look at the range of Peruzzo car bike racks that we sell online.
